Totally agree with you. I love the powder coat on this game bump. You’ll need some showing non faded cabinet, volcano top and playfield. Glwts.... great game

Lots of folks shooting for the stars lately

Yep, for sure woody.
From 4k to 6 in one year.

I have a condo and if I have a powder coat I would do it exactly like that green and that looks great

#7 1 year ago

Your gonna powder coat your condo? Now that I gotta see!

Condos are up too this year, powder coated might bring in the just right buyer

Can you blame them? Look at the asinine prices people are paying for games sight unseen. Dude, LZLE is nearly under $1K shy of $10K NIB. That used to be a "by Christmas" joke, now it's nearly a "bend over and spread em' and pay it" fact.

As long as the NIB market goes up, so does the used market. Don't like it? STOP buying NIB games.

But this community won't. It can't. Pinball is on par with air conditioning in Florida during the summer to some here.

That's a reality check that some people's mental and emotional banks won't be able to cash.

I thought it was getting crazy 2 years ago, but this pricing lately is absolutely INSANE. I refuse to pay these prices, so i guess I will only score good deals moving forward which are few and far between. the only reason I got a NIB JP Premium was because it was $6800 and I happened to have a friend in the area who could pick it up for cheap.

maybe not 6500 game but hasn't been a 4 k game in 2 yrs

I paid $6500 for a congo a couple months ago so the price looks inline to me...

it should still be, fun but lets be honest. It's $3-4K pin all day long game play wise.

Looking at the listing history here says it's not far out of line either. Of course pinside made fun of me up till the moment my Apollo 13 sold for it's list price of $6400...

What is the equation to determine this?

#20 6 months ago

I had multiple offers from several people for my Congo at 6500 in the last year and a half so I finally sold it to make room for something else. It was pretty minty.

6500 is where minty Congo’s are at right now. I didn’t even go to buy the Congo. I went for a good price I500 and he mentioned the Congo while I was there.

I had been watching Congo’s for months
